After the death of two persons in Bihar's Katihar during protests against electricity outage, officials claimed that they did not die in police firing, but by bullets shot by an "unidentified" person. Releasing a CCTV footage of the incident, the Katihar police said that it was a "planned conspiracy". 

"It is a planned conspiracy. We had been smelling a rat since the police had fired its shots from a place too far to have hit any of the protesters," District Magistrate Ravi Prakash and Superintendent of Police Jitendra Kumar made the claim while sharing with the press a CCTV footage of the incident that took place on Wednesday.
